The Top-Ten Superpowers of All Time + In the Mouth of Urban Decay

The Top-Ten Superpowers of All Time is an exploration — in poetry, music, and performance art — of heroic ability. Human beings are miraculous and flawed. Being human is an exercise in bold imagining and dashed hopes. We long for grace, dexterity, and bravery to get us out of jams and elevate us above our mundane experience. At the same time, we often feel invisible, small, and tapped out. In this collaborative production, Alli Marshall (spoken word) and Ryan Glass (piano) hope to find the spaces where our weaknesses become our greatest strengths. Asheville locals BAD TIES take their unique spin on beat poetry performance into the world of mixed media performance art with their new show “In The Mouth Of Urban Decay,” a 30-minute presentation of film, music, and original spoken word surrounding themes of displacement, geography and life’s little disappointments.
